Mayor Pat Fiacco is pleased to announce that the City of Regina will host the 2012 National Infrastructure Summit, September 10 – 12, 2012 in Regina, Saskatchewan.
All orders of government, political leaders, administrators, and members of the public and private sector are invited and encouraged to attend to engage in discussions and workshops from leaders and experts in various fields on global best practices and new approaches to planning, building and maintaining infrastructure including roads; bridges, water, wastewater, sidewalks; and underground pipes.
The City of Regina, along with other local, national and global communities are facing growing infrastructure challenges and as such, must find new, innovative and sustainable methods to provide and maintain this core infrastructure, resulting in municipalities that are better prepared for the 21st Century.
The 2012 Summit is an opportunity to move further towards practical solutions that will result in the creation of a long-term, sustainable investment model and funding plan through innovative and creative solutions that meet the current and future infrastructure needs of our communities. Delegates can engage in lectures, workshops and forums involving leaders in various fields of expertise.
The 2012 Summit offers a more practical approach to the conceptual and creative insights explored in Summit 2011, and will include the following highlights:
- Continuation of themes: financing the opportunities; program models / governance; citizen engagement; innovation; and defining the need.
- Local, national and international speakers with expertise in the theme areas.
- Two urban renewal competitions - “Morph My City”.
- Invitational Innovative Trade Show that will showcase innovative tools for resolving infrastructure issues.
- Experience the best Regina has to offer and much more!

One of the ways to ensure success in better positioning our cities for tomorrow’s challenges is by collaboration and sharing of ideas. One of the ways to do this is through the “Let’s Transform Our Communities” website. The website highlights practical, innovative and creative solutions, technologies and best practices for infrastructure financing and delivery issues. The information produced by the website will then be featured at the 2012 Summit. The City of Regina encourages and welcomes your innovative input in the Let’sToc website, which can be found at www.letstoc.ca.
